And you’re the one that keeps me tame.” COMPLEX praised Save Me calling it “A beautiful new record from TheHxliday, in which the young artist calls for help to escape the torment of his own thoughts.”

The Blossom – Angel Fangs

PRAISE FOR THE BLOSSOM

“Windows-down cruise music for runaways and self-searchers” – Complex

“Music is in the genes for Lily Lizotte” – Daily Telegraph

“The LA artist takes ‘bedroom pop’ to its highest form” – Document Journal
“Lily Lizotte is a Sydney, Australia raised, LA based talent who has the world ahead of her in the form of music” – Lyrical Lemonade

Sydney-raised, LA-based singer-songwriter and producer The Blossom (a.k.a. Lily Lizotte) today presents her latest single, the impossibly intimate “Angel Fangs.

Angel Fangs” follows on from her debut EP, Bleeding Buttercup, as well as her appearance on Future Classic’s Shelter in Place, a compilation highlighting emerging musicians from around the world during the COVID-19 pandemic. Blending together dreamy shoegaze, guitar-driven indie, skittering, hip-hop-influenced pop production, and Lily’s multilayered approach to her vocals, Bleeding Buttercup played with the restrained sonics of bedroom pop to explore the emotional and mental terrain of that private space.

Where her debut EP was defined by an unfaltering commitment to openness and vulnerability, “Angel Fangs” takes that purpose even further, relying solely on grainy acoustic guitar, Lily’s close, lonely vocals, and her painstakingly self-conscious lyrics. From an artist who is building a career out of excavating her own defenses, “Angel Fangs” is The Blossom’s most exposed and understated track yet.

Of the track, The Blossom shares that she “wrote ‘Angel Fangs’ during an isolated quarantine, hanging off the side of my bed… I was feeling restless and hopeless… this song felt like an ache, something that was building up and lamenting. I wanted to confront myself with an over-awareness that in its confrontational manner feels soothing and liberating… cause I guess I ended up writing a lot of lyrics that had been buried and burrowing underneath my skin for a while. So I chewed up my feelings and spat out something that we recorded in 1 take and left it at that. I didn’t use written lyrics, I just let whatever fall off of me.”

Leo The Kind for 360 Magazine

Leo The Kind – Ain’t Nobody Gon’ Judge

Positioning himself as an artist to watch for 2020, critically acclaimed Boston-born singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Leo The Kind releases a new single entitled “Ain’t Nobody Gon’ Judge” today. It serves as his official debut for LAVA/Republic Records.

On the track, which got its first look on The Fader, today Leo commented, “I wrote ‘Ain’t Nobody Gon’ Judge’ when I first moved out of my parents’ house. That freedom I felt when I first moved out on my own and could do what I wanted without judgement was the first spark of inspiration. But women have it way harder than men, they are constantly judged. I wrote the song to speak to the women of the world for what they go through every day, wishing them freedom from judgement. While I can’t ever know what it is like to be a woman, I want to empathize as much as I can and say, ‘I see you, I won’t judge you’.”

Leo The Kind instantly sets himself apart. The Boston-born singer, songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist, moves to his own beat and gives the world some positivity with his own alternative R&B style. In 2019, he caught the attention of GRAMMY® Award-winning producer and songwriter Swagg R’Celious [H.E.R., Kehlani] and his GRAMMY® nominated production partner Keithen “Bassman” Foster. This union quickly produced and released his mixtape, The U.G.L.Y., which featured “Head Honcho” and was championed by Apple Music editorial on top playlists, including New Music Daily, New In Hip Hop, and Get Up And Go Day One, and more. The mixtape was just the beginning, as Leo inked a deal with LAVA Records. Recently posting up 10 million total streams independently, and receiving acclaim from Lyrical Lemonade and Earmilk, he is set to release his new single “Ain’t Nobody Gon’ Judge,” an anthem to inspire others.

Rence – Tears in December

Indie-Pop Whiz RENCE Releases “Tears In December” + Animal Crossing-Inspired “Type 2” Video

NEW SINGLE FOLLOWS SLEW OF BUZZING TRACKS AND VIDEOS FROM THE 2020 ARTIST TO WATCH

Today, genre-defying singer, songwriter and producer Rence unleashes his latest single “Tears In December.”  Get it HERE via Epic Records

The track begins with a creaky guitar and echoey beats as his breathy vocals exhale confessional verses. The energy organically blooms into the quotable refrain—“Sick of the sound of my heart hitting the ground”—before the vibe turns on a dime into a lonely late-night dancefloor singalong. The song takes inspiration from Rence’s own journey and come-up, having made the decision in December of 2019 to move from New York to Los Angeles.

“Tears in December chronicles my personal life following some major changes I underwent recently, including moving back out west from New York,” says Rence. “I thought I needed to leave my old home (and person) behind to start fresh in an exciting new city, but once I got here I realized pretty quickly that I was wrong. This song is that realization. I sing the lyrics to someone very special to me that I made the mistake of leaving, but beyond that interpersonal relationship, I wrote the lyrics to remind myself not to be too quick to move on and forget the past. That past is precisely what got me to where I am and what will help me continue to move forward. In the lyrics I say ‘sick of the sound of my heart hitting the ground,’ but a big piece of that sentiment is the realization that I was the one breaking my own heart. That heartbreak found it’s way into my songs for a while – especially because I’m always trying to be honest and authentic in what I create – and I was just sick of hearing it.”

Rence continues to unveil new music and exciting visuals at a steady pace. Earlier this week, he dropped a tripped-out official video for “Patience,” taken from his Fall 2019 EP.  It followed on the heels an acoustic video for the song where he performed on his front porch accompanied by a solo keyboardist. The latter illuminated his raw, unfiltered talent with a showstopping rendition of the tune. Earlier this month, he released an Animal Crossing video for his most recent single, “Type 2.” It cuts together footage of his Animal Crossing: New Horizons avatar to bounce of the track, bringing the song to life Nintendo Switch-style. Meanwhile, “Type 2” nears half-a-million streams in Spotify in addition to earning critical applause. Lyrical Lemonade claimed, “‘Type 2’ is the perfect example of why Rence is one of the most promising vocalists in the music industry right now.”

Capitalizing on the momentum sparked by the release of his Fall 2019 EP, Rence has received much acclaim and accolades. Pigeons & Planes named him among  “Best New Artists” while his breakout single “Expensive” [feat. Noah Cyrus] recently surpassed 6 million global streams. Having recently wrapped a North American tour with Christian French, Rence has gone on to received looks and acclaim from the likes of Nylon, i-D, The FADER, Billboard, Paper and more.

About Rence

Sharing real life snapshots in song, Rence magnifies his personal perspective through a genre-less palette, bordering pop, alternative, electro, indie and hip-hop all at once, yet never dipping into one for too long. He introduced himself on the breakthrough independent project, Pink. The lead single “Baby Blue” racking up nearly 10 million streams. Peers such as Chelsea Cutler and FLETCHER lent support as critical acclaim came from Hilly Dilly, Lyrical Lemonade, Ones To Watch, Elevator Magazine, and more. Tastemaker Zane Lowe handpicked “Ways To Go” as his “World Record” on Apple Music’s Beats 1.

The project peaked at #12 on the Billboard 200 and featured appearances by Gunna, AJ Tracey, Trippie Redd and Chris Brown.
